Provides the first monograph on the subject of constitutions modeled by effectivity functions
Reviews and extends the literature on this issue from the beginning, around 30 years ago
Relevant for researchers, including PhD students, in the area of game theory and social choice theory
This monograph studies representations of effectivity functions by game forms that are at least Nash consistent, which means that they have a Nash equilibrium for any profile of preferences. In the second part the focus is on social choice functions that admit a strong Nash equilibrium resulting in the sincere outcome. A central interpretation of an effectivity function is that it models a constitution.
